How do i check my block heater?

I dont believe my block heater is working i used ohm meter to check across the plug and got nothing. also my plug never even gets warm with my 95 the plug would get luke warm after bein plugged up all night. how hard is this to change and where can i get one? was thinking bout just setting a small space heater under it tonight think this would help?

After it's been plugged-in a while you should be able to feel some heat where it goes into the block above the filter.

If you Ohm-it-out and get an "open" reading, then I'd say you've probably got a bad cord so unplug it there where you felt the block and test it again (this time one end to the other)

You can get a replacement @ Ford, they should all stock 'em....
